Acne is the most common skin problem in the Philippines, affecting around 17 million Filipinos. It is usually manifested by breakouts of pimples on the face, back, shoulders, and chest, that when left untreated can lead to scarring.


Who Are At Risk?


Although acne occurs across all age groups, it commonly starts among  individuals entering puberty, with 80% of teenagers experiencing it. However, there are also cases of acne in adults, particularly those dealing with fluctuating hormones, as in women dealing with hormonal problems.

Factors that influence or worsen breakouts, include but not limited to:

  • Stress

  • Food with  high Glycemic Index ( eg. white bread and potatoes)

  • Hormonal changes

  • Family history
